Even if you don’t make it to Grand Cayman in time for the annual Pirates Week celebration in mid-November, you can still enjoy a nice dose of buccaneer history on your trip. The Bodden Town Pirates Caves & Nature Trail provides a glimpse into the life of pirates that used Grand Cayman caves for shelter and treasure storage. The caves provide fun for the whole family and include several attractions. Take a moment to learn about these extraordinary caves and everything else you can expect from this unique park during your visit.
Use your provided map to explore the legendary caves occupied by some of the Carribean’s most notorious pirates. You and your family do not need any special equipment to experience a taste of the past. Locals believe treasure still lies beneath the cave sand, which pirate ghosts continue to guard. According to cave myths, these dead pirates volunteered to stay behind and protect this bounty.
You’ll feel like you’ve entered another world as you wander through these caves amidst tropical vegetation. Enjoy learning about the island’s incredible history as well as local flora and fauna during your underground adventure.
